a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that w
taxes. that we shouldn't do that. you know what obama said three days after? he said eric, i want, you must come i trump you on that. a week later he said i want the folks who got us into this mess to do a whole lot less talking and a lot more listening. you can talk a little, but he wants you to stand beside mine so we cleaned this up for you. unbelievable, condescending notion of unifying the country, bringing us together. instead kansas city mantra of attack and vilify the other side. it was just like his 2008 campaign for president was hoping change, while the speeches with no substance whatsoever. the only substance as he was going to unify us come to be that post-partisan president in almost immediately it was conservatives are hostage takers. they are the enemy. they care only about millionaires and billionaires are not children's autism and down syndrome. but with this approach? why did obama and his administration come in wanting to vilify the other side the content featured? he was bringing to the administration that philosophy of a community organizer. for years obama has sa
-paying jobs in these industries will be paying the taxes to some other country, will be simply an economy and some of the country. you want to know what america is special? one of the reasons why it special is because for over 200 years we have been a collection of the world's best and brightest to a magnet that attracts people here and now have an immigration system in the 21st century that is making a very difficult to achieve. that's what this effort is to the other concern i heard is what about folks that are in this country now? this is a legitimate concern when people raise it, i don't get upset about that. that is a very legitimate concern. about the kids are raised here and go into these intricate, will they be hurt if you have seen the need, they need far exceeds what we are producing. so that's not an immediate concern but here's the other. that is the startling figure that was used earlier. that for every 100, 100 foreign-born s.t.e.m. workers we're creating 260 some odd jobs. it's indisputable that these jobs create jobs for people right down the line in this process. if you'r

taxes and you will have to pay a fine. and what you will get is basically the equivalent of a nonresident visa that allows you to work here. you do not qualify for federal financial benefits, so you are not a strain. i've heard that concern raised, this is going to place a strain on our social services. as a nonimmigrant visa holder you do not qualify -- under existing law now you do not qualify for federal benefits. what you get is a work perm. the ability to be here legally. we know where you are, we know where you live. you pay taxes. you've paid a fine. this is not amnesty and you have a nonimmigrant visa. there is nothing you can do with that visa is stay here and work. you can travel to visit relatives. you can't turn that into citizenship. they will have to remain in that probationary phase for a significant period of time, not an unreasonable period of time but a significant period of time. after that period of time elapsed and if they have complied with all the requirements of that probearingsary period and if -- probation ary period and if it is certified the en
with the government, undergoing background check, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution has alluded past presidents including george w. bush. >> legal immigration is one of the top concerns of the american people, and congress's failure to act on it is a disappointment. >> president obama did announce during his first term that his administration would stop deporting some young undocumented immigrants but he was taken to task at a univision town hall for not promising to do something different. >> you promised something. a promise is a promise. with all due respect you didn't keep that propgs. >> what i promised was i'll work every single day as harold as i can that regardless of who they are, what they look like, where they come from, that they would have a fair shot at the american dream. >> reporter: still hispanic americans, the country's fastest country growing bloc helped repel president obama to a second term. it was a "wake-up call" to the republicans. >> i do know there are those who want to solve this problem, fix this mess and many of us agree with that. >> report
,000 in legal fees for her defense attorney jose baez. in addition to over $200,000 in back tax, fees and penalties. according to the courts the aim of seeking chapter 7 bankruptcy protection is to be discharged of ex-ing debts essentially to get a fresh financial start, a fresh start. which is something casey anthony is certainly no stranger to. and cbs affiliate kpho reports that anthony spoke with one of their anchors and called the filing "the next step towards closure." >>> popular snacks including devil dogs, ring dings and yodels will soon or could soon be back on store shelves. the maker of little debbie snack cakes is reportedly the leading bidder to buy those from hostess for up to $30 million. hostess still hasn't announced a lead bid for its most iconic treat, the twinkie, so the twinkie's fate is still up in the air. i'm sure that will be settled. >>> finally, an unexpected visitor greeted a delay or created a delay at a college basketball saturday. it was a bat, a bat 234r50iing around the bradley center, there you see it in milwaukee. it sent players and coaches scrambl
taxes. i think one of the things that you're seeing is there is this change. i think it's happened much more quickly than a lot of people thought it would. mccain reverting back to the old mccain. lindsey graham who is facing probably a primary test down in south carolina, a state that is now 5% latino. one of the fastest-growing states in the terms of latino population down there. so i think we're going to see the sort of blood letting on the republican party along all of these issues, but i think at the end of the day mccain speaks for a majority of republicans who are looking at a way to reform their party and looking at these changing demographics. >> howard, the stakes are high for one republican in particular. senator marco rubio has been front and center on rush limbaugh's radio program making the case for immigration reform. while limbaugh praised him, he's also met his share of critics. see what david vitter told laura ingrham today. >> i love marco but i think he's amazingly naive on this issue. this is the same old formula we've dealt with before including when it passed in 1
to eliminate a lot of tax breaks and loopholes that we heard from our colleagues about in order to reduce the deficit in a balanced way. if you don't do that, you sock it to everybody else in the country. let's pass a balanced approach to reducing our deficit and not one that takes it out of the expenditure. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: i would just say w have already increased the debt limit over $5 trillion in the obama administration, almost a 50% inkeys in the debt limit. let me also say we have had many several, temporary short-term increases in the de limit before there's been a more permanent long-term increase in 1987, 1990, 1996. it is not unprecedented, the action we're going to be taking today. with that, i yield two minutes to the distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentleman from washington state, mr. reichert. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. reichert: thank you, mr. speaker. let me see if i can simplify this a little bit. so there's three branc
, particularly when it comes to confidence, it was down in january because folks took a hit with that payroll tax cut expiring. and in social security taxes. but still encouraging news overall. >> i wonder, the banks have these strict guidelines now. much stricter than before because of the huge banking debacle. so i wonder are they lending money to folks who want to buy a home. that's going to be an issue, i think. >> that always helps spur things on. the bank loosens its grip on the green. that tends to help. and the federal reserve expected to release a statement that could have an impact on the markets in terms of their latest economic outlook. so stay tuned for that. >>> oil giant bp and the justice department have agreed to a record settlement in connection with the 2010 gulf oil disaster. in addition to paying $4 billion in penalties, the company agreed to plead guilty to manslaughter for the deaths of 11 workers on the deep water horizon rig. bp could pay billions more in civil claims for environmental damage. >>> another financial headline for you. there could be a big change coming to y

the presidency, rammed through those bush tax cuts in march of his first year in. democrats get power, and they are free to use it. this time, we democrats won the white house. we picked up what? three seats or whatever it was in the senate, held on to the senate and picked up, up to 55 votes in the senate and picked up -- didn't win the house but won eight new seats in the house of representatives. so democrats have the power today. this was the best moment, the best opportunity we will ever have to do something important for this nation in order to get things done no matter which party is in charge and go aheadet rid of the filibuster or at least fix it so that it can't -- it's not subject to such abuse and refuse to do it. just walked away from that opportunity. harry reid did. diane, up in buffalo new york hey, diane, good morning. >> hey, bill. how are you? >> bill: i am good. just a little -- caller: i am not just disappointed. i am angry. i am so angry at harry reid. you know, we fight the fight every day against these republicans against t
the tax credit that exists for consumers. it is important to keep a variety of options available for consumers. if we are going to meet the 2025 standards of 52.5 miles per gallon, it is going to take not just more hybrid vehicles, but it will also take continued improvement in the efficiency of the internal combustion engine, and companies are focused on that. when you walk around the auto show, they will have exhibits that show some of the things they're doing that make the traditional gasoline-powered engine even more efficient and increase gas mileage. host: next call from matt blunt, president of the american automotive policy council -- dug in syracuse, new york. caller: good morning. mr. blunt, i wonder if you could explain to the american taxpayer and consumer why the taxpayer bailout should not be totally paid back by the government, to the government, by the big three auto makers. guest: you know, the government has an ownership stake in general motors today. they have worked with the government, a general motors and the government have come to an agreement about the re
should be paying taxes are living in the shadows. we need to make them fully contributing members for our society. our economy is denied the contribution of people who want to work hard and be productive members of the society. this has lingered unresolved for far too long. it is time to get it done, move on, and fixing our broken immigration system, and no one disagrees with that, is urgent. i support the efforts of this bipartisan group of senators. people always looking for acts of bipartisanship in this body. take a look at this. this is work that is exemplary and i commend each of them. it is an urgent priority. our nation needs a common-sense solution in a tough and smart path to citizenship for the estimated 10 million citizens in our country who are undocumented. i have been advocating these principles for years. i am pleased the bipartisan framework meets that criteria. i am encouraged to see progress and they are finding common ground. president obama has made immigration reform a top priority. it is my top priority. i am committed to getting this bipartisan issue that we now ha
